Reviewed on 2/21/2107 I chose Leanna to do my make-up for my Wedding because I heard such great things about her! She did a fantastic job on everyone! We all received compliments all night!! I would definitely recommend her for your next event!! -Kayla E
Reviewed on 2/21/2017 These two ladies are serious professionals. All of my bridesmaids were really impressed with their skills. I would say they were probably the best money I spent on the entire wedding. Worth every penny.
Reviewed on 2/21/2017 Leanne was absolutely amazing to work with. She is very talented, beyond sweet and able to create the exact look you are going for. I had airbrush makeup done for the first time and let me tell you - that makeup does not budge. 100% worth the few extra dollars! She did makeup for myself, my bridal party as well as my mom and grandma. All the girls said they felt absolutely beautiful and were very pleased with the outcome.
Reviewed on 2/19/2017 My nightmares came true when my makeup artist cancelled on me two weeks before my wedding day. Luckily, Leanna not only swooped in and saved the day, but was also 100X more talented and professional than the first artist I booked. I have had airbrush makeup done many times in the past and also dabbled in the art myself, and Leanna is definitely one of the best. My makeup stayed perfect all day. She uses great products and takes good care of her equipment. Everything was clean and sanitary. She is very knowledgeable and stays up to date with industry best practices. She is particularly great at contouring and blending everything to make you look like the best version of yourself (not you with a mask on, which is the unfortunate outcome of hiring a less experienced artist). She handles all types of personalities and expectations very well; I knew exactly what I wanted and she did it, then my maid of honor sat down and said “make me pretty, but less pretty then the bride” and she delivered beautifully then too. If you have specific concerns about your skin, she is very helpful in addressing them, no matter how excruciatingly detailed they are (or in my case, probably a figment of my imagination). If you are detail oriented and you want your makeup to be perfect, or if you know nothing abut makeup and just want to feel pretty on your wedding day, or if you are somewhere in-between, there is no one better than Leanna.
The prettiest I've ever looked Reviewed On 1/02/2016 Alisha M Leanna was incredible! She did my makeup, my bridal party, and my mother in law.. All I have to say is we looked like movie stars both on and off camera. My father-in-law couldn't take his eyes off his wife!! Pictures were incredible and I've never felt so beautiful in my whole life. That's how it's supposed to be! She was sweet and very accommodating to my pickiness. It was perfection and we had a blast. I've worked with tons of makeup artists in the modeling industry and she is by far the best and most reasonably priced!
Reviewed On 5/17/2016 Lauren B Absolutely amazing! Leanna made us look so beautiful! Everyone was extremely pleased with their make up. She took the time to listen to what we wanted and perfectly executed it!
Reviewed On 3/24/2016 Rebekah M All of my bridesmaids and I got airbrush makeup done for my wedding and I can't tell you how beautiful we were! I mean, I think my bridesmaids were the best looking ones to begin with, but after she was finished with each one of them I thought I was going to cry. My mom even decided to have hers done as soon as she saw the girls' makeup! My now husband, is not a makeup man. Every time I would do a "heavier" makeup he would make it known he wasn't a fan. I told her I wanted a natural look and she did just that, and he even mentioned that my makeup looked like I was glowing, and loved it! I wish I had her there to do my makeup everyday!!!!
Reviewed On 3/14/2016 Rachel S Words cannot describe how incredibly amazing Leanna is! I found Leanna on the Knot when looking for a hair & makeup artist who would travel to my location but also fit within my budget. Leanna recommended her work colleague Grace for hair and so I set my trial run with them both. They work out of a beautiful salon suites in College Station and were both super accommodating with my schedule. Any questions I had I could get a super quick response via email or text and Leanna and Grace were always so sweet to me! Their portfolios are amazing but the quality of their work is absolutely phenomenal! I had about 8 ladies who need hair, makeup or a combination of both done on my wedding day, Leanna and Grace were flexible to come to wherever I needed and we ended up having it all done at my home. I felt like a million dollars and have never looked more beautiful! Two of the sweetest and most talented ladies EVER! Leanna is THE BEST and if you want to look gorgeous and stay within your budget-no question-she is the PERFECT CHOICE ! If you don't believe me, schedule a trial run with her work will speak for itself! Thank you Leanna and Grace for being so friendly, amazing and making me look beautiful!
Reviewed On 1/07/2016 Katie F Wow! Where to begin?! Leanna is AMAZING! I had originally booked my makeup with someone that lived a little closer to me (I live in Brenham). Long story short they never even wrote down my appointment and left me without a makeup artist for my bridals or my wedding, one month beforehand. I was extremely stressed out and came onto the knot in hopes of finding someone else. Leanna’s page immediately caught my eye and after looking at her website I knew I had to email her! She just seemed so approachable and that was very important to me. I mean, who wants someone doing their makeup that has a bad personality or is stuck up? Not me! I emailed Leanna and she was very prompt in getting back to me and I could tell she wasn’t the type that would leave me in a bad situation. Upon meeting Leanna for my trail run/bridals, she solidified my good feeling in choosing her. She was professional, kind, went out of her way to help me, and make me feel SO beautiful! I had gotten my hair done (by someone else) for my bridals that morning and by the time afternoon came It had completely fallen. After not only giving me an amazing makeup makeover, Leanna offered to help fix my hair. She literally re-curled and saved my flat hair and didn’t even charge me for it. HOW AWESOME! Once my wedding day rolled around, she drove out of town to my venue and left me feeling absolutely gorgeous for my big day! She helped me stay calm and gave me the exact look I was going for. I could not say enough good things about her and would highly recommend her for anyone that is looking for a fabulous makeup artist!
Phenomenal airbrush makeup by Leanna Duran Reviewed On 7/14/2015 Madelyne MI hands down recommend airbrush makeup my Leanna Duran. It is worth every penny and she makes you feel and look like an angel! I have used her on numerous occasions: My engagement pictures in Sept. 2014, Bridals pictures in May 2015, College Grad photos in May 2015, college graduation in May 2015, and for my wedding reception (myself and four bridesmaids) in July 2015. Leanna is extremely talented, reliable, and very easy to work with. I laid my trust in her to make me feel beautiful on my important days this year!
Lovely Work from a Lovely Woman Reviewed On 7/01/2015 Jessica W First thing you should know. AMAZING! She does such a wonderful job, she made it so that I was my most beautiful self! Leanna did my makeup for my wedding in October 2014. I gave her a good idea with pictures and descriptions of what kind of makeup I wanted to go with. I really wanted an almost retro look but with a softer spin on it. She was able to replicate everything I wanted with ease and perfection. And never having had my makeup done by someone else (professional that is) she made the entire process very relaxing. I was very stressed and nervous and Leanna really helped to calm me down and make me smile. It was a perfect start to a perfect day. Leanna used airbrush for my foundation and blush (another first for me) and it was flawless!! And the false eyelashes she used were the perfect ones, even though I thought I wanted a different set at first, she showed me how the ones we used would add the perfect touch to the look I wanted. And even with never having had falsies before, she was able to attach them with ease. I have to say though my favorite part of my makeup was my eyes. The cat-eye was perfect, not too heavy but not too light; the eye shadows complimented my skin, eyes and features while also coordinating with my vintage theme. My eyes looks unreal; my husband was complimenting me all night long! Leanna Duran is someone I would ABSOLUTELY recommend for your special day! She even gave my mom some tips to make her makeup (which mom did herself) extra special. I cannot thank Leanna enough for making me into my most beautiful self and for being there for me on my most important day. As the title states: she is a lovely person, and she most definitely does a lovely job.
Leanna is great! Reviewed On 6/28/2015 Brittney D I and all my bridesmaids absolutely loved our make up for my wedding! Leanna came on location and was on time, professional, super easy to get along with and truly amazing at her work. She took her time to understand exactly what I wanted for my wedding day and I couldn't have been happier! I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Leanna's Makeup was Amazing Reviewed On 6/28/2015 Jessica J Leanna did my airbrush makeup for my bridals and wedding as well as some of my bridesmaids. She did an amazing job and was on time! The make up stayed on all night and looked flawless even though we danced hard all night. I would highly recommend her!!
Amazing Work! Reviewed On 6/27/2015 Angela P Leanna was absolutely amazing. I told her what I wanted and she did it perfectly. I have never felt more beautiful in my life. I was able to feel like the picture perfect bride because of her artwork. I also had the makeup done for the mother of the bride, mother of the groom, and all of the bridesmaids. Everyone looked gorgeous. She was able to do dramatic eyes for some and natural for others. I would recommend Leanna to anyone and everyone!
